Way back in the black and white days of 2006, a friend of mine was very stressed out. He was applying to various universities, trying to make honor roll, working a minimum wage job to save up for tuition, and trying to make time among all of this to be the best boyfriend he could be to his girl.
One night, after a pretty emotional talk with him about all of this, I was about to turn it in when creativity struck. Never really being hit with this wave of intellect before, I felt the need to write this down. I scrambled to find paper and a pen in the dark, tripping over various things, knocking stuff over. I didn't want to wake anyone, but the urge to lay ink was insatiable, so I pressed on.
I finally found something onto which I could scribble my creation. I felt as though some other entity was controlling my every stroke, sort of a poetic phantom. Once completed I gazed upon the page in pure amazement. I couldn't believe what my inner-wordsmith had just unleashed. I feared sharing it with anyone but who it had been written for, until now. A fellow Hubber has inspired me to share this work. I've included links to some of my favorite poems by that Hubber below.
Please let me know what you think, I'd love to have feedback on this.
Believe it or not, time flies by
Readily pressing forward until we die
Even though it seems not enough
Amounts are plenty when times are tough
Though thoughts of you ease my mind
Help to slow the flow of time
Each moment cannot be spared
Determined we are, though not prepared
Ever in this moment we are unaware
Ever in this moment...
Please breathe deep my friend, we're almost there
I hope that this poem may have helped you or impacted you in some way. I know we all go through hardship in our lives, and we may lose sight of the important things. We need to keep our eyes on our goals no matter how difficult things may get.
Though it is true that some people have it much harder than others, we need to be aware that we are not the only ones who have problems to deal with, and just because someone may not be vocal about their issues doesn't mean they have a perfect life. Some people have been through so much that they just carry it very well. I have met many people who are very happy even though they have been through wars, or murder, or divorce, or various other life-changing tragedies. Always keep this in mind.
Please let me know what you think of my poem and be sure to check out the links below. They are written by a very talented poet.
As always, stay excellent!
